I finally have everything ready to send off to my tax preparer so that I can hopefully get my refund within the next month or so. I've been using the same accountant for ages, the father of a friend I had when I was in preschool! Unfortunately, this often means that I'm a little lax about getting everything sent out to him and sometimes, I'm a little lax about paying, too. He doesn't charge me very much, so it was easy to just forget to send my payment out. I actually stuck a check for last year's services in with this year's papers! Oops!
Now that that's done, I can start looking forward to my refund. I usually don't get a huge amount, but it would be great to have something to put toward the traveling I want to do this summer. I will need to pay for a hotel, rental car, and cross country flights, plus food and admission at Legoland and the San Diego Zoo, so any extra bit of money I get will be helpful!
What are you looking forward to at tax time?
